U.S. Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) today issued the following statement in response to Governor Pat Quinn's State of the State Address:
"As the economic crossroads of America, Illinois should be the best place in the nation to locate and grow a business. While we may differ on many issues, Gov. Quinn and I agree that our brightest days are ahead of us. To build a better future for Illinois families, our state leaders should be focused on solving our fiscal crisis, including unfunded pension liabilities, and not the next election. We have an incredible opportunity to right our fiscal ship and prove Illinois is without a doubt the best place in the nation to locate a business."
